  1. I'm surprised they didn't. They didn't have to fill the place, but even if they'd opened it up to 50% capacity it doesn't seem like it would be too tough to manage the # of people. Around here the state campgrounds are only filling every other site. Some have put their usual activities on hold and have closed their common spaces like arcades, etc. I know of one that's not allowing tenters in so that they don't have to deal with how to keep the bath houses clean throughout the day. It's a family run place without a lot of staff. NH is still only allowing reservations to NH residents and MA is still not allowing visitors. But speaking of visitors... I wonder how the Fort will handle the non-campers that typically show up this time of year to use the pool? I expect they're being extra strict about not allowing people in without a reservation?
  2. Keep an eye on this thread from Jason (super sponsor, travel agent and "The Man") - he's been doing a great job keeping us all updated on the latest info re: bookings, tickets, etc. straight from the Mouse's mouth...
  3. I was surprised Hangar Bar fell into that category as they do serve a fair amount food, but I guess they may not sell enough of it.
  4. This was just posted an hour ago... https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2020/06/26/jock-lindseys-hangar-bar-in-disney-world-forced-to-close-one-day-after-reopening-due-to-floridas-new-executive-order/?fbclid=IwAR3vN57WiiGvUm4tgDSWszi82MPR594bL24yHGDhOGWJeIM5ZjretWG59v4
  5. Safe travels and I hope you have a terrific time!
  6. Gotcha. So... do restaurants with bars keep their bar areas open?
  7. Posted a couple of hours ago. Not sure how this is going to effect the bars at Disney Springs - to go cups for everyone? https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2020/06/26/breaking-news-alcohol-consumption-banned-on-premises-at-florida-bars/?fbclid=IwAR36CKTTA62RiZNnYDsMYncdDKYf5eSOzDkpu2r9jNld4fbvVh1GfBhax20
  8. Yep. Not surprised. Maine isn't messing around either. While it's still largely the honor system, if you try and reserve a room or campsite in ME and you're coming from MA, you have to sign a waiver stating you've either quarantined for 14 days or had a negative test within X number of hours (48?). That was the rule for anyone coming into Maine but the most recent order exempted those of us in VT and NH because where we have far fewer cases than MA and other Northeast states.

  10. Ray that stinks. Sorry they wasted so much of your time! I wonder if yesterday was especially crazy because of all the info coming out? Might be worth it to wait a few days until things calm down a bit.
  11. So...does this mean MBs will be going away completely at some point? http://doctordisney.com/2020/06/19/walt-disney-world-discontinuing-complimentary-magicbands-for-resort-guests-in-2021/?fbclid=IwAR1P6SybMuSJYiWZPUNlH_Gahxyt1N1IPNIBoGF06lWpKcIbuc5a7x-DXqM

  13. Very possible although the article said they worked for 2 weeks "while sick". It could be worded badly of course (again consider the source). There's still no actual news article about it, just the WDWNT article and apparently a bunch of social media posts, but those may all stem from there too.
  14. From WDWNT... As mentioned by Vahle in his post, Tri-Circle-D Ranch is set to reopen next Monday on June 22 along with Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. The redesigned the Tri-Circle-D Ranch will offer a modern stable and updated outdoor spaces and facilities for “The Happiest Horses on Earth.” Here, we see the tiny, yet mighty baby Violet, a foal that was recently born at the ranch. On the Walt Disney Cast and Community Facebook page, a video was shared showing the newborn foal, Violet, bonding with its mother Elsa: The new ranch will also include a museum-like space, maintaining the history and spirit of the original Tri-Circle-D, welcoming guests to explore exhibits of classic Disney equestrian artifacts, some of which date back to the 1950s! Here, we see the Dragon Calliope, an authentic circus wagon that was purchased by Walt Disney himself back in the 1950s for use in the short-lived Mickey Mouse Club Circus parade at Disneyland. The Calliope went on to appear at Disneyland parades until the park’s 25th anniversary. It was eventually repainted silver and blue for Walt Disney World’s Tencennial in 1981, and featured in multiple parades and Christmas broadcasts before retiring to the former Tri-Circle-D Ranch location. It has since also been moved to the new ranch! https://wdwnt.com/2020/06/photos-video-first-look-inside-new-tri-circle-d-ranch-at-disneys-fort-wilderness-resort-baby-foal-named-violet-born/?fbclid=IwAR19hSI1Kbj03lVtNkDZGC1YmV9GLQIJScckXOdC5chlBgVj889eK5erZxc
  15. So much this. It's one thing to decide you're willing to risk your own health. It's another thing entirely to knowingly put other people's health at risk, especially when they're trusting that the measures they've been told have been put in place are being enforced. (sigh)
  16. I really hope the contact was limited and no one else gets sick. Temp checks for sure fall short but if someone is actively sick for 2 weeks, someone they work with should have noticed. Then there's the whole thing of anyone who knows they're sick reporting to work anywhere right now, never mind in a restaurant... (argh) That last bit is exactly why I'm not eager to go anywhere right now. As it is DH has had to work throughout this and just this week they have someone who is out sick awaiting the results of a COVID test. As it happens, she lives with 4 other people that work there, all of whom are not sick at the moment and so have been coming to work this whole time.
  17. Putting this in the Rumors Board as so far the only info I've seen on this is coming from WDWNT (and well...) But if it's true, it's pretty disturbing. What happened to health/temperament checks for all employees and not letting people work if they're sick?? https://wdwnt.com/2020/06/employee-at-t-rex-cafe-in-disney-springs-reportedly-tests-positive-for-covid-19/
  18. Oops, missed that.. And now that dining reservations are required to visit a resort you're not staying at, looks like both park and resort hopping are out of the question for the short term at least. I get why, but it's a bummer. Those are 2 things we do really often.
  19. Just ran across this. Not surprising that Disney is going to change a bunch of menus right now (I still haven't seen anything official about if/how they're going to address buffets), it wouldn't be a stretch to think that also shakes out to the dining plan being put on hold altogether at least for now... NEWS! Disney World Just Changed A LOT Of Menus... https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2020/06/16/news-disney-world-just-changed-a-lot-of-menus-and-weve-got-the-details/
  20. That's interesting. I know they took back free dining for people who'd booked it and replaced it with a room discount. So... is the dining plan going away at least temporarily?
  21. And I have a feeling those rules shift based on the resort and time of year. Doesn't surprise me Disney doesn't publish them. They probably don't want people figuring out how to game the system like in the past.
